A healthy lymph system promotes healthy body tissues and body functions. The lymphatic system is the body’s primary immune defense and waste eliminator system. When this system is blocked, we become defenseless against attacks by virus, fungus and bacteria.
The positive effects of massage go far beyond simply “feeling good.” Therapeutic massage has been proven to promote many tangible results on the physical, mental, and emotional levels.
Massage has a very rich history.
